Your item was apparently checked by an admin:
https://catalogd.archive.org/log/290420635
And when viruses were found the item was made dark:
https://catalogd.archive.org/log/290447888

The following file are detected as mallicious and have virustotal reports:
Mais-EV.exe - https://www.virustotal.com/nl/file/236dad43eec758d8819c911b492089ecf823230d4faea1099f3081e6a6111c1b/analysis/1392576338/

I think the best thing you can do is send an email to info[at]archive[dot]org and explain your problem to them.

Arkiver, I already explained the problem to this email. I hope they can listen and help me on that.

The item I mentioned has more than those files scanned and detected as containing malware(s).

For example, item 1 has or had 10 files.

3 of 10 had virus detected by this scan.

However, the other 7 with nothing wrong were deleted as well as the entire Internet Archive page.

So I lost everything.

And the 3 items with virus detected were not my fault.

I mean, I didn`t upload on purpose any malwares, I don`t care them with me.

What happened in this case was simple

1) I had to save as EXE (RAR self-extract) because Internet Archive would not allow me to save as RAR or ZIP extension. I saved as .EXE because of that.

2) What these EXE contained were HTML-saved pages from Firefox or other browser. When you visit a page and select SAVE AS... the entire page is saved as HTML with a folder. You need this folder to see the HTML page properly. Unless you have only saved the HTML file.

Such content could not be saved with a RAR or ZIP extension.

What I am asking you is simple

* Please help me recover the rest of files that had no malware detected on it.

You may restore the entire page/item and just delete the affected files. I can accept that, or I may download the affected files again and work them here, and do not upload them again.

Two more pages were deleted from my account for the same reasons.

Thank you for your interest in adding files to the Internet Archive. Unfortunately, one or more of the files you uploaded into item Jrp-JoseRobertoPereira-Bk-Gravacoes appear to be malware, and the item has been removed from archive.org. You can get more details about the malware file(s) here:

Forajrp-Formspring.exe https://www.virustotal.com/file/e207d2d27149d188edc50236028fd231bd389dead22f76851a6d66b6f0355050/analysis/1393418953/

About this one

https://catalogd.archive.org/history/Jrp-JoseRobertoPereira-Bk-Gravacoes

It was a huge loss for me, since as you can see here (Google cache)

https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/53143167/PERDA-BK.pdf

It had several podcasts besides the EXE files mentioned, Forajrp-Formspring.exe and Milkoflove-FormspringEm13-05-2012.exe

About the Forajrp-Formspring.exe, it was a collection of posts made in a formspring account that I saved as HTML and put inside a RAR self-extract (.EXE) file.

In this case recently I took the decision to convert to PDF. I should have done the same thing with all others, before your AV scan did this thing.

Look how the Forajrp-Formspring.exe looks like in a PDF version in this MEGA.CO.NZ link

Did you see what I am telling you? Now I can read this thing in a tablet device.

Please guys, help me with this thing, don`t let me lose all my files
